Born and raised in New York “Yankee” (Niagara Falls, NY) who found his way to a suburb of Nashville in 2012 after living in Florida for almost 37 years. Moved there to marry a beautiful woman I met on eHarmony. She’s also a Yankee from Long Island, NY. While native Tennesseans are wonderful folks, many have a difficult time warming up to us “carpetbaggers”, but tolerate us with humor and respect, kind of. Am on my third wife but still own my first radio.
